Love, Once and Always is a romantic film that tells the story of Lucy (Amanda Schull), a successful event planner in New York, who is called back to her hometown of St. Louis for the funeral of her beloved aunt. She is accompanied by her best friend, Alice (Anna Van Hooft), who is her assistant and supports her in her business as well. Upon her arrival, Lucy is welcomed by her old friend, Duncan (Peter Porte), who is still bitter about his past relationship with her. The two had a summer fling ten years ago but eventually drifted apart because of their diverging career paths.

Despite the initial awkwardness, Lucy and Duncan find themselves working together to settle her aunt's estate, which includes a mansion that holds both sentimental and financial value.
